Incredible India

The A quick reminder for those who have not been on the blog lately – I’m in India doing a segment for Confluence Films next movie, “Waypoints”.  I’ll be fishing with my good Indian Friend Misty Dhillon, owner of Himalayan Outback and expert on fly fishing for mahseer.

 

We arrived at 1:30 AM India time today.  By the time we got to our hotel in Delhi if was 3:30 AM.  Then of course in the US it was 3:30 PM so we were a bit wired even though we should have been tired and we stayed up to 5 AM over few celebratory arrival beers and snacks at the hotel bar.  Then we slept a mere three hours and went on an all day tour of Delhi, which even though I’ve toured plenty of times throughout India, the tour was excellent.  India never fails to AMAZE.

 

Tomorrow we make a 7 hour train ride north to the base of the Himalaya’s, then a long jeep ride to where we begin a 10 day float trip.  If all goes well we will begin fishing for mahseer tomorrow evening.  The only bad news I have for you is the blog will go dry here till I’m out of the backcountry as I will have no computer access the entire trip.  But – we’ll post day by day when I get back.  Enjoy today’s photos of some crazy parade we lucked into along with some great scenery around the city.

 

Exhausted!

I started fly fishing at age 7 in the lakes and ponds of New England cutting my teeth on various sunfish, bass, crappie and stocked trout. I went to Northland College in Ashland, Wisconsin, where I graduated with a Naturalist Degree while I discovered new fishing opportunities for pike, muskellunge, walleyes and various salmonids found in Lake Superior and its tributaries.

From there I headed west to work a few years in the Yellowstone region to simply work as much as most people fish and fish as much as most people work. I did just that, only it lasted over 20 years working at the Jack Dennis Fly Shop in Jackson, WY where I departed in 2009. Now it’s time to work for "The Man", working for myself that is.

I pursue my love to paint fish, lecture on every aspect of fly fishing you can imagine and host a few trips to some of the most exotic places you can think of. My ultimate goal is to catch as many species of fish on fly possible from freshwater to saltwater, throughout the world. I presently have taken over 440 species from over 60 countries!
